GUEST JoeG - Just listened to Sail Plattern's "The Bonny Ship the Diamond", it would have been better had they let it severely alone, or restricted themselves to playing it as an instrumental number.

On Calan, all I can say is that on the Continent, over in the USA, in Canada and throughout the UK there are similar bands equally as good, the only point of difference is that some of Calan's material is in Welsh. Used to see bands like them right, left and centre at every festival you'd go to. Thankfully not so much now, they all sound exactly the same and after 15-20 minutes the audience goes "fiddle deaf".
